The Packers took care of business against the Texans this week.
After a rough performance last week against Tampa Bay, the Green Bay Packers had a huge bounce-back win on Sunday. I was high in Green Bay coming into the game and I would even say that they exceeded my expectations.
This game seemed like a get-right game for the entire team, the offense showed out, and the defense played their best game of the season so far. Green Bay dominated in this game, winning 35 to 20 and the game never even seemed to be in doubt for the Packers.
The Houston Texans are a team that’s suffering from a lot of dysfunction right now, and to be honest, they look like they have quite a bleak future even with the removal of Bill O’Brien. They of course have Deshaun Watson, who is one of the most exciting players in the entire NFL, but they really don’t have much otherwise.
On top of this, they don’t have a lot of draft capital or cap space to play around with going forward. So safe to say the Texans were ripe for the picking against a dangerous Green Bay team. The Texans defense is one of the worst in the league, particularly their rush defense, which ranked last in the NFL entering Week 7.
As bad as Houston has looked this year, there were some worries among Packers fans going into this game. Green Bay has been hit with the injury bug pretty hard this year. Star left tackle David Bakhtiari was held out of this game, as was star running back Aaron Jones, among other players.
So, let’s take a look at some players who played the best and gained the most from a victory like this.
